"I ride to be a part of the community. To me, biking is traveling on a human scale at a human pace, and it's how I get to know my world. Biking allows me to say 'hi' to fellow riders at stoplights, wave at friends on the sidewalk, see the sights and hear sounds of the streets, and get a sense of my city when it's busy and when it's quiet. Group riding is my favorite activity because we can all share the world together!"
Riding is better with friends: Here's Galen out on a Sunday afternoon with members of the Boston Bike Party Organizing Group as they explore rail-trails along the North Shore of Boston.
